In an interview, Alex Jones’s ex-wife said that he is “mentally ill” and needs to be “protected from himself and others.”
Kelly Nichols, who is 54 years old, hopes that the defamation trial will teach him that his “crazy” actions are “not okay.” Nichols saw Jones lie in court on August 3, 2022, when text messages showed that he had sent messages about the Sandy Hook school shooting, even though he said he hadn’t. Nichols said that the lie was a “come to Jesus moment” that “a lot of people are going to be interested in.”
Jones looked shocked when he was told on August 3, 2022, during cross-examination at his defamation trial that his lawyers had given the other side multiple text messages that he had said did not exist. Jones has been accused of keeping important evidence from families of Sandy Hook victims who sued him for defamation after he spread lies about the 2012 school shooting. The host of InfoWars had said before that he didn’t have any messages about the mass shooting on his phone. He was shocked to find out that his team had sent a digital copy of all the texts and emails about Sandy Hook, even though they had said under oath that such texts did not exist.
Mark Banston, an attorney who works for the parents of a child who died in the Sandy Hook shooting, said that the parents got the information 12 days ago. The information came from a number of years. During the trial, Jones called it their “Perry Mason” moment. He was accused of lying under oath when he gave evidence.
The new information comes before the jury starts deciding how much Jones should pay for slandering the family of a Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting victim. Jones seems to have lied on the witness stand when he said he had given the court all of his text messages about the massacre. Now, legal experts say that he could be charged with aggravated perjury, which in Texas could get him up to 10 years in prison.
What is her name?
Alex Jones was married for eight years to Kelly Rebecca Nichols. Nichols was born on July 2, 1968, and is said to be a person who fights for animal rights. Edmund Lowe Nichols and Sandra Kay Nichols brought her into the world in Travis County. According to Just Richest, Nichols’s father used to be a diplomat. In 1993, he was found guilty of breaking the Federal Financial Conflicts Law of Interest. On her Twitter page, it says, “Leaker of information, activist, speaker, and writer. Anti-propaganda, destroying disinformation like Infowars, and pointing out wrongdoing.”
Nichols and her two siblings, James Nichols and Elizabeth Nichols, grew up in Travis County. As of March 2021, she worked for PETA, a well-known animal rights group, as the head of media operations and public relations. Nichols got married to Jones in 2007, and the couple now has three children. They got a divorce in 2015, and because of what he did, she asked for sole or joint custody of their children two years later. She had said, “He’s not a stable person, and I’m worried that he’s threatening a member of Congress, which is illegal.” In the end, she was given the right to choose where their children live. Jones kept his right to visit.
Nichols has now said that she thinks the time Jones lied will open people’s eyes. “I think you saw someone having a “come to Jesus” moment,” as they say in Texas, she told Inside Edition. “The secret is out, and a lot of people are going to want to know about it.”
“Alex is really sick in the head. I think he should be kept safe from both himself and other people. He has no sense of right and wrong. He lives in a world of his own. He is a very crazy person “Nichols added.
One of the people killed in the shooting was a 6-year-old boy named Jesse Heslin. His parents have said that an apology is not enough. Neil Heslin and Scarlett Lewis are now trying to get at least $150 million from Jones because they think he should be held responsible for spreading lies.
Judge Maya Guerra Gamble told the jury that the phone’s entire contents were “not turned over properly when they should have been.” In 2018, Jones made $80,000 a day, according to the messages, and the lawyer for the Sandy Hook parents said, “After your platforming, your numbers keep getting better.”
Jones is also being criticized because he said he was bankrupt, which has not been proven. Judge Maya Guerra Gamble told Jones, “This is not your show.” “It’s not true just because you think it is. You are making a promise.” In September 2021, Guerra told Jones off for not giving the Sandy Hook families the documents they had asked for.
In Texas, there are two kinds of lying under oath. For misdemeanor perjury, you have to lie under oath. For aggravated perjury, which is a felony, it has to happen in a legal proceeding and have to do with something that could change the outcome of the case.
In a separate lawsuit, the parents of other Sandy Hook shooting victims have asked the jury for $150 million in damages for defamation and causing emotional distress on purpose. Jones has said that the case against him is an attack on his rights under the First Amendment. Courts in Texas and Connecticut have already found him guilty of defamation for calling the Sandy Hook massacre a hoax.
Nichols told the newspaper, “I know he had hidden money.” “I think he has a lot of shells hiding a lot of buckets.” She also said, “I hope the jury comes back with a verdict that tells him this is not okay.”
On December 14, 2012, a lot of people were shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. Adam Lanza, who was 20 years old, shot and killed 26 people, 20 of whom were children between the ages of six and seven. The other people were adults who worked there. Lanza shot himself in the head as first responders were coming to the school.
